I'd like to pick up a few feet of bungee to put in my repair kit... I NEVER want to re-tie one again!

What are the specs on bungees used on Revs (I have a 1.5 SLE, Shockwave, Blast & Power Blast 2-4) and where can I buy it either locally or on the net?

Thanks..

When you asked "where can I buy it locally"......we can't help you unless we know where you live. :wink:

There are many shops that do mail order business too. Most all kite shops/stores sell  Revolution products, therefore all you need to do is contact any of those stores, and tell them that you need bungee cord for the wingtips of your revs, and tell them that you want to buy/use the same diameter and strength bungee that is used on the revs, and they can sell you what you need. Each connection point on your revs should need about 10 inches of bungee.

Here are a couple on-line sources:

The only place I repair items and other gizmoes is through The Kite Shoppe (www.thekiteshoppe.com). The wab site doesn't show all of what they sell, but it does have a phone number and an e-mail address.

Watty.

Go to www.kitebuilder.com click on Kite supplies click on Notions (on the left ) click on Stretch cord.
Its the 3/32 you want BSC10. That should do you fine.
Regards.
